Summerfield 1977
When teacher Simon arrives in a small, secluded village to take over the local school, he is surprised to discover that his predecessor has disappeared without a trace - and that nobody seems too concerned about it. As Simon probes deeper into the disappearance, the inhabitants of a forbidding estate called "Summerfield" take on more and more significance - until events reach a tragic, shattering and unforeseen climax.

Summerfield is often described as the Australian Wicker Man, but that description is as misleading. Summerfield is an excellent Aussie thriller-drama. It's moody, bleak, and features a very unsettling ending. A definite must-see for fans of 70s Australian cinema.
